Pear Pollination

European and Asian Pear trees are easy to grow and very rewarding for the gardener.  Pears need close attention to matching bloom times for good fruit set. In our cool spring climate, we have extended bloom times; other climates with warm springs may have more compressed bloom seasons that allow more pollinizer choices. The charts below are based on our experience in the Pacific Northwest; contact your local Master Gardeners or county agricultural extension agent for information about bloom times in your area.
